We are a professional partnership of psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists based in London, providing one-to-one psychotherapy to help people find a way forward through issues of depression, anxiety, and relationship problems along with many other emotional difficulties.
House psychotherapists are trained in a range of therapeutic approaches, allowing them to adapt the psychotherapy experience to meet your particular needs and emotional concerns. Rather than trying to match the client to a therapy, we’d far rather match psychotherapy to the client.

A positive, forward-looking, integrated approach to psychotherapy
All House Psychotherapists registered with the Health & Care Professions Council
Sharing a deeply held belief that positive change is possible for all our clients
